If your reading this, we probably don’t have to tell you why owning a pet is very different from owning a toy that you can chuck the moment it stops amusing you. Unfortunately, this is most likely what happened to Hobart, the adorable tiny pup in this story. Fortunately, on the other hand, he was only on the streets for a few hours before he met his saviors, two kind LAPD officers. It wasn’t long before the adorable dumped puppy was filmed as he chases the cop, begging for his attention, in a clip that quickly went viral. But it wasn’t just the cop’s attention that the puppy got that day.
Officers Mercado and Tavera are two devoted police officers of LAPD’s Hollywood Division. The two were patrolling the streets of LA one day when they stumbled upon an adorable tiny puppy on Hobart boulevard. The little critter sensed that the officers could help him, and desperately tried to grab the two’s attention. He trotted after them, whimpering adorably. Officer Mercado, who couldn’t resist the sweet little critter, instantly scooped him up and took him to his police car.
The kindhearted officers decided to name the pup Hobart, after the place that marks the beginning of a new chapter in his life. They brought the pup back to the station, where the other officers offered to train him to join the K9 unit.
As Hobart was only a few weeks old, Mercado volunteered to adopt the pooch until he’s old enough to join the K9 unit. Now sweet Hobart can finally get the tender love and care he needs, to grow to be a strong, happy pooch. Thank you Officers Mercado and Tavera, for remembering that the motto ‘to serve and protect’ applies to any soul in need.
